I am looking for additional information about my family. I have partially traced my family back about five generations but there are lots of gaps if you can help, please let me know. Here is some of the information I have collected:
...The oldest ancestor I have identified thus far is Charles Parker, born in Virginia in 1800, his wife's first name was Violet also born in 1800, her last name is unknown I found an individual I believe to this Charles Parker in the 1880 census as a single person in the household of Joe White in Louisiana, his relationship is listed as other. Charles Parker was the father of Charles W. Parker who was also born in Virginia in 1828. This Charles W. Parker was the father of my great grandfather David Parker. At some point before 1862 when my grandfather was born, the family relocated to Polk County, Texas many members of the family still reside there. I am providing some the information I have collected on my family thus far;
David Parker was my great grandfather. This is his family of origin:
